the balanced wheel of life

Type of activity: Journal

Location: Anywhere

Materials: Journal / Pen / Printout / Crayons

Length 30-40 minutes

If you can, download and print out the wheel of life. Alternatively use a page in your journal to create your own like the one at the bottom of this page. For each of the statements colour in the corresponding section of the wheel depending on the degree to which you agree with the statement. For example, if you 100% agree with the statement colour the whole section. If you 40% agree with the statement colour 40% of the section. I recommend using a different colour for each area.
